Publisher's Summary

Millie Barnes is this close to finally achieving her perfect life. Rewarding job as a local doctor on Cape Cod? Check. Cute cottage of her very own? Check. Adorable dog suitable for walks past attractive locals? Check! All she needs is for golden boy and former crush Joe Carpenter to notice her, and Millie will be set. But perfection isn't as easy as it looks - especially when Sam Nickerson, a local policeman, is so distracting. He is definitely not part of her master plan. But maybe it's time for Millie to make a new plan....

    "Couldn't have been better."

    Perfect. Loved every minute. Kristan Higgins is a genius with romantic comedy. And Xe Sands is one of the best narrators out there. She could read me the phone book!

    Story
    "The Narration is a big reason I kept listening!"

    Fools Rush In by Kristan Higgins (Audio Edition)
    Narrated by Xe Sands

    3.5 Stars

    I have had this book in my tbr pile for a while. Some of the reviews were not that favourable, so it kept getting pushed down the line. However, I finally decided to listen to it, largely because I love listening to Xe Sands (the narrator) and also because Kristan Higgins hasn’t steered me wrong so far.

    The characters: Millie, she seemed a bit immature to me for a good chunk of this story. The whole “stalking a crush” is very much a high school girl thing and just seemed a bit pathetic for a smart woman, on the other hand I can see how she’d perhaps kept that crush alive in her mind for so long, that she just wanted it to happen….albeit desperately. She had some good growth in the book, which I liked to see and in the end she was a decent character.

    Joe.. oy! That guy was too much. Some of the crap he pulled mad me just plain angry.. Then for Millie to just accept it! UGH!!! Whatever.. His immaturity matched Millie’s during that part of the book so, I guess I can’t complain too much. He had his sweet guy moments but he definitely wasn’t a normal Higgins hero that I would fall in love with.

    Enter in Sam. Here’s the hero.. He’s a good guy, sweet, funny, caring. All the good stuff. I enjoyed his straightforwardness and conversations with Millie. The naturalness between these two is one of the reasons I kept reading… (the other pretty much was the narrator, I truly love her voice). Sam's teenage son Danny was also a great addition, and I really enjoyed the bond between him and Millie.

    Now.. for the subplot… I will admit that I did get weirded out by the whole “ex-brother-in-law turned lover”, for the sole reason that he had a kid that, if this turned to marriage, would have to switch from her being Aunt Millie and now think of her as his step-mother.. But I must say.. Kristan Higgins even wrote this well. When it came right down to this part of the book.. I was fine with it.

    In the end, this wasn’t a favourite of mine by this author but I am glad I read it.

    Always on the lookout for a great listen, any genre, but mostly romance, mystery or adventure. Alpha males and smart women? Yes, please.

    Story
    "No."

    I did not enjoy this story. Too much time was spent in the heroine's angsty head. The story was lackluster. Worst of all, I always enjoy Kristen Higgins humor, but this book had none. Of course I could have missed it, as I fast-forwarded through the last third of the book.

    Story
    "This Book Has An "Ick" Factor To It-Watch Out"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fools Rush In to be better than the print version?

    Did not read print version


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The outcome.


    What about Xe Sands’s performance did you like?

    She sounds like she has a sense of humor. I think she is an excellent narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I did. I didn't laugh or cry. I guess I was a tad bit too judgmental...I was creeped out. And I did not like the ending. It just seemed so unrealistic....Just could not get past it. Kristin Higgins clearly manipulated us into hating one of the characters for a reason. It didn't change my mind into liking the ending. But here's the thing, I have listened to this audiobook more than once. That is why I did not return it.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this book, but I really did not want to.

    Story
    "Audio so hard to understand"
    Would you try another book from Kristan Higgins and/or Xe Sands?

    Probably not. Storyline didn't make the main character seems very independent, confident, etc. considering she was a doctor. Story drug on with the same insecurities.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure, but will look for another "series" author.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The audio for this was so hard to understand. I used three different devices and sound quality was bad on all three making it very difficult to understand. Had to force myself to finish listening and didn't enjoy having to work that hard at it.


    Do you think Fools Rush In needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No other characters to follow.


    Any additional comments?

    Book just needed spice.

    Due to being on the road hours most days, I'm an avid Audible fan! I live vicariously through the stories as the miles pass.

    Story
    "Enough Already!"

    Xe Sands is one of my all time favorite narrators, so that helped. Without spoiling it for anyone else, I just have to ask .... "really?!". The main character never thought to wonder or question anything about this guy she's stalked for 15 years? The idea for the book, while initially appealing, was just run into the ground ... in my opinion. I kept asking myself how she could be smart enough to make it through med school, yet so absolutely oblivious to everything else. Interesting concept, no passion.

    Story
    "Internal monologue drags a bit"

    Not a lot happens in this story. It is entirely from the point of view of the inexperienced woman who is quite confused. The beginning especially dragged and was a bit whiny. Not the fault of Xe Sands who performed the book quite well.

    Story
    "Narrator was impossible to listen to !!!!!"
    What would have made Fools Rush In better?

    A different Narrator. I have no idea what this book is about. I could not listen to this narrator...it was awful !


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kristan Higgins again?

    Yes, if there were a different narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Xe Sands’s performances?

    absolutely not ! I like listening to soft voices but this was just monotonous and monotone. I seriously could not listen to the book because the words droned from one into the other.


    What character would you cut from Fools Rush In?

    No idea.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm going to try listening to this book one more time...ugh !

    If the story doesn't put you asleep the reader will! It was so slow I fell asleep twice.
